Our integrated team are empowered to think outside traditional silos and find innovative solutions that exceed client expectations and stand the test of time.




“The best thing about designing buildings is taking a vacant land and turning it into something of value.” Chris Cooper, Principal

Back in 2004, engineer Nick Canto and building designer Chris Cooper created icubed with a vision of forming an integrated design practice for enhanced client outcomes.

Having met at the University of Southern Queensland, and sharing background experience in consulting and construction firms, Nick and Chris both recognised the potential for a consulting firm where multiskilled disciplines come together to create outstanding buildings and urban spaces.

The result is an integrated network of highly collaborative and skilled engineers, designers, scientists, planners and technicians, who pride themselves on the exceptional outcomes they deliver on projects of all sizes.

The diverse skill set and experience of our team allow us to quickly problem solve, while always looking outside each project’s scope for opportunities to improve or further innovate.

icubed have built our reputation on individualised and collaborative service. Driven by our diverse team of passionate development professionals, our focus is on enhancing the full potential of every space we work with. Our strategy involves end-to-end assessment, design, approval and construction – we can handle it all.

We’re supremely proud of what we do. Our people, our clients and what we have achieved historically, is a powerful reminder of what is possible now and for the future.

From concept to handover, we deliver.
